PRESS RELEASE
15 April 2010

A new Stilton-office opens in Oslo to be the first independent author’s agency representing Norwegian authors both in Norway and abroad. With offices in Stockholm, Helsinki and Oslo Stilton Literary Agency is the first Nordic literary agency.

− Scandinavian authors experience great success and draw a lot of attention from the literary world these days. As a literary agent I hope to contribute to even more positive interest for good Norwegian authors and to help them find the right publishers and markets abroad. With Stilton it is possible to present a wide range of Norwegian writers as part of a professional, Nordic co-work, says leader of Stilton Norway Hans Petter Bakketeig.

− I am inspired by English and American agents and by their way of working with authors and publishers. I believe it is possible to aim for a higher standard of professionalism for an author’s career in Norway. In achieving this, the literary agent can play a key role, and that is my ambition for Stilton Norway.

− We are very happy to open Stilton Norway together with Hans Petter. He has worked as editor and editor-in-Chief for Gyldendal Norsk Forlag since 1992 and will with his background from international publishing further strengthen the competence of the Stilton-team. Stilton now has, as the only agency, offices in Stockholm, Helsinki and Oslo, we see that as a great advantage for our international network and for our authors, says Jenny Stjernströmer Björk, Stilton Sweden.
